    I have no clue what breed this is. Could it be a type of Jersey Giant?

    Not a speckled sussex due to lack of brown in feathers. Looks like an ancona to me.

    I also thought speckled sussex at first, but when you enlarge the pic you can see the color and the white earlobes, so I'm thinking ancona also. But what's up with her legs, are they as bad as they look in the pic? They look like scaly mites or something. Could just be mud, I guess, but if it's your bird please check it out.

    She has red earlobes, not white. I think you were looking at her ears. :) She is mostly white, so probably a Mottled Mix.
